Books For Thought: Do you ever get tired of the continuous series installments?

Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!

Have a question idea? Share it here and I'll feature your blog in this post.

Do you ever get tired of the continuous series installments?

My Answer: Unfortunately yes. I sometimes miss when a novel is just a novel. After I finish a book in a first series, I always wish I had the next installment to continue the cliffhanger. But, realistically speaking sometimes we, as readers, can wait up to a year for the next book.

By then, I most of the time have forgotten how the first book ended. I find myself struggling to remember while I read the sequel, which in the end takes away from my love for the series. The obvious reaction would be to read parts of the last chapters in the first book, but would I actually do that? Probably not.

I've even stopped reading some of my beloved series just because I couldn't keep up with the installments. So, yes at times I do enjoy a novel when it just ends, leaving you satisfied, instead of frustration.

What are your bookish thoughts?

Yes! Sometimes I find it difficult to keep up with series books and sometimes I'm reading so many series at the same time I get so confused!

Great to see you back, Eleni! :)

Yes me too.

I have even stopped a series because it too.

I feel the same way about series books. Sometimes I find myself just buying them and waiting until I have a few of them before even attempting to read them.
